Questacon, Canberra Reviews

  • Highly recommended activity to do during any trip to Canberra. Love how interactive Questacon is, with lots of hands on experience. The new light exhibition is fantastic with lots of engaging experimental learning opportunities. Would love to see more high end science and technology demonstrations to inspire the next generation but I am sure this will with the push for STEM.

  • An amazing place that engages kids and adults in science for hours. The vapor pool showing the invisible arrival of particles was awesome. The shows are entertaining and informative with very funny and knowledgable presenters. The staff were excellent. Everyone in my family thought this was the most fun thing we did during our visit to Canberra

  • Questacon is always a great place to visit whether you're a young family or just want something to do with friends. They combine science with exciting education with the different exhibits showcasing and explaining many aspects of our world. Additionally they have a café to unwind after a long day, and some sideshows to add a bit of variety.

  • Great time out for the kids. Adults don't get bored either. Staff are excited and engaged in the shows on ground floor. Easy 1/2 a day to be spent here. More if you do every activity.

  • Got kids? Or not? Doesn't matter. If you love the science in its many forms this is a Canberra must do! You skip this joint while you're in town? You'll lose IQ points, guaranteed! Deadset - this place will make you proper learned and educated, what! Plus the staff are all sexy nerds :)
